The day has come.

The official countdown starts today. Eighty-one games left.

It’s Opening Day in New York City!

The venerable and much honored New York Yankees take the field at 1:05 p.m. EST against AL East opponent the Blue Jays.

Ben at River Ave. Blues has a story to tell you about his first Opening Day. I wish I had a chance to experience this myself.

Here’s to a great final season at The House that Ruth Built.
